More post-event news is cropping up, after the debut of today's PlayStation Showcase. Not only did we learn that the console will be launching this November, we also got to see the price: $399.99. Sony also revealed that certain PlayStation 5 games will retail for $69.99, while some games thought to be PS5 exclusives will also release on the PS4. These games include Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Sackboy: A Big Adventure, and Horizon Forbidden West. Both the digital and physical versions of these games will offer free upgrades to the PlayStation 5 versions, should you choose to eventually play on the next-gen console.

Additionally, we know that the PS4 community will transition to PS5 at different times, and we’re happy to announce PS4 versions of some of our exclusives. Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Sackboy A Big Adventure, and Horizon Forbidden West will also launch on PS4. While these three games were designed to take advantage of PS5 and its unique next-gen features like the ultra-high-speed SSD and DualSense controller, PS4 owners will also be able to enjoy these experiences when they launch. The PS4 digital versions of launch games include a free upgrade on both PS5 consoles, while the PS4 disc versions of these games include a free upgrade on the PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-Ray disc drive.

The current launch lineup for the PlayStation 5 will focus on 5 titles from first party studious: Astro's Playroom, which comes pre-installed with the console, Demon's Souls which retails for $69.99 in North America, Destruction All Stars, Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and Sackboy: A Big Adventure.

ouch, 70usd a game?
It means it will cost more than 100CAD here with taxes
We pays 80CAD right now and with taxes it brings it over 90$ :(

I was wondering how it would look like in other regions, but 100 CAD is just $76 USD isn't it? So not a huge delta over the US price. Even worse in Europe apparently though.

I've been a huge PS fan for so long, but this is looking grim. The fact you can buy a Xbox console right now, that will play next gen games, at a fraction of the cost, albeit slightly reduced graphics - is a steal. Game Pass, is the absolute G.O.A.T. even into 2021.

it seems we dont have the same definition of what "very high priced" means
76USD is still less than what we pay right now without taxes (80CAD)
Also, USD and Euro have pretty much the very same value
Games will also be 69.99euro up there

And finally, USD currency might be higher valuable, wages in our countries are the same
For a job in us where the wage is 20USD/Hour, the same job in Canada will be waged at 20CAD/Hour

So yea, video games are VERY high priced in Canada :(

That's.. a pretty sad lineup to say the least. Looks like I'll be waiting a couple of years until all the worthwhile games are out
And a less-fugly console revision is made. It's so hard to look at. Whoever passed this design along needs taken out back and shot. I've seen better looking fan-made renders, honestly. Just bring back the fat PS2/Xbox One X look and feel. Stick with what works.
